Did the Supreme Court Create a License to Discriminate against LGBTQ People?

by Dan Quinn


Worried about the fallout from the recent Supreme Court ruling for the baker who chose to discriminate against a same-sex couple? Does the Masterpiece Cakeshop decision turn religion into a license to discriminate against LGBTQ people? Get answers from the experts at a series of town hall meetings this month in four Texas cities.

The Masterpiece decision has clearly emboldened the right, leaving LGBTQ Texans to wonder if it’s “open season” for discrimination:

  • If you’re turned away from a business for being gay or transgender, what can you do?
  • May public officials use their religious beliefs as a reason to refuse to marry or issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples?
  • Is it too late to stop anti-LGBTQ activists from passing more religious refusal laws targeting communities they don’t like?


Experts from the Texas Freedom Network, Equality Texas, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, Resource Dallas and other partners will help answers these and other questions.
